Dominium Energy caught doing some IMAGINATIVE accounting regarding Offshore Wind Turbines

Dominium Energy, well-connected to the "Biden/Handlers" folks, were doing some IMAGINATIVE accounting regarding Offshore Wind Turbines, which made electricity production  LOOK too low to be true.

Sure enough, the Virginia State Corporation Commission questioned Dominium assumptions.

New Study: Wind, Solar Energy Now Killing 48% Of Priority Bird Species With ‘Population-Level Effects’

This “new bird-killing study” is basically old news.

All the bird killing is the fault of Obama, who had a bug up his a.s about expensive wind turbines that produce variable, intermittent electricity at a very high price, that will saddle the US economy with high energy costs and make it EVEN less competitive with other countries, which will have the EU countries laugh all…

EVER WONDER WHY OUR LEFTIST GOVERNMENT IS INTENT ON PUTTING US IN ELECTRIC CARS?

Written by Lehr and Harris

The Dem/Prog Biden administration may be judged evil as it relates to virtually all of its new energy directives, which are in accordance with its top-down PLAN. 

.

The underlying purpose of everything it does is to use control of the federal government to reduce our freedoms and increase centralized command/control over our lives.

Germany Weighs Extending Nuclear Plants Lifespans In Major Russia-Inspired Reversal

Germany's energy systems analysts have known for at least a decade:

1) Wind and solar are troublesome actors on the grid

2) They are too expensive for any industrial economy

Solar is very expensive on an “all-in” cost basis, shows up around midday, disturbs the grid, so the other electricity generators have to ramp up and down their outputs, to allow this short-time intruder onto the grid. After that disturbance, peace and quiet is restored to the grid,…

PUMPED STORAGE HYDRO PLANTS IN NEW ENGLAND, IF 100% WIND AND SOLAR

Based on the plan of eliminating fossil fuel plants (they emit CO2 and particulates) and nuclear fuel plants (they are alleged to be dangerous) by 2050, the existing gas, nuclear, coal and oil generating plants would be decommissioned and no new ones would be built.

 

This would require huge build-outs of wind, solar, and storage systems, and increased electricity supply via external ties to adjacent grids.

 

There is no way one can close down nuclear, oil, gas…

Air Source Heat Pump Evaluation in Vermont by VT-DPS

VT-Department of Public Service found, after a survey of 77 HPs installed in 65 Vermont buildings:

 

- The annual energy cost savings were, on average, $200/y, but the annual maintenance, and annual amortizing costs (at 3.5%/y for 15 years) would turn that gain into a loss of at least $200/y.

 

- On average, the HPs provided 27.6% of the annual space heat, and traditional fuels provided 72.4%. These numbers are directly from the survey data. The small percentage…

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.
